Kojima hiring staff for ‘next generation Metal Gear title'

Konami Japan’s website was recently updated with job listings for 15 new positions at Kojima Productions for a ‘next generation Metal Gear Solid’ game. The job listings include openings for a planner, level designer, scripter, graphics programmer, network programmer, audio programmer, game character programmer, concept artist, various 3D CG designer positions, and a position for someone experienced with video production.

The position for graphics programmer requires a ‘deep knowledge of the latest CG technology’ and experience with the ‘PC/PS3/Xbox 360’ platforms, suggesting that the new hires will be put to work on a multi-console title.

The next multi-console Metal Gear game expected from Kojima Productions is Metal Gear Solid: Rising, which is scheduled to release sometime during 2012.

    @Darkhawk: He said that he was done with MG after every game, actually. Seriously. After MG 1 & 2, and after all the MGS games. It's kind of funny by now.

    I love how Kojima said he was done with Metal Gear after SoL.

    Both in the image? Great. Raiden really will go back in time to kill Snake.

    I hope all 15 turn out to be script editors.

    Big boss and Raiden on the same picture?! What's going on in Kojima sans head right now? Now I won't be able to sleep until I figure it out...
